Wills and Estates – Introduction

Estate planning involves planning for the orderly transmission of assets on death and planning for incapacity.  We offer clients a full range of services covering all aspects of estate planning, from simple estate plans (e.g. wills, trusts, powers of attorney and representation agreements) to complex corporate organizations (e.g. family trusts, estate freezes) and business succession planning (shareholder and buy-sell agreements).  As well, we can advise clients who wish to plan for the protection of a disabled child or other relative.

We are also pleased to advise clients on estate administration.  The task of an executor or administrator can be time consuming and emotionally taxing.  We provide a range of services, from obtaining a grant of probate or letters of administration, to complete representation of the estate on behalf of the executor or administrator.  We also assist in gathering information on the assets and liability of the estate, prepare accounts, distribute assets to beneficiaries as well as work closely with tax professionals to ensure all necessary Canada Revenue Agency filings are made.
